El sarampión puede viajar (Measles Can Travel) (November 2008)
Listen to the podcast  Listen to this podcast (1:21)
En Estados Unidos, el sarampión no constituye una preocupación de salud de primer orden, porque la mayoría de las personas han sido vacunadas contra la enfermedad. Sin embargo, todavía se registran brotes de esta enfermedad infantil. En agosto del 2007 se diagnosticó sarampión a siete personas después de un evento deportivo internacional para niños celebrado en Estados Unidos. Practicamente todos los brotes de sarampión en Estados Unidos se originan en personas que contraen la enfermedad en otro país y la contagian a otras. Este fue el caso del brote más reciente. Este podcast habla de este brote y de los pasos que pueden tomarse para evitar brotes futuros.
